    Link and meta tags pasted from MS Word are missing the backslash when copy and pasted from MS Word.

    Copy a link from MS Word and paste into editor, the link and meta closing tags are missing the backslash. '>'

    Paste the same link into the AngularJS version and the link and meta closing tags are correct. '/>'

    Hi David,

    Indeed the EditorComponent removes the slashes from self closing tags. I know that it looks odd that the pasted content is modified, but according to the spec(see p.6) they are optional and omitting them does not render the tag invalid.

    Nevertheless I have logged an issue on our issue tracker here -

    I hope this helps.
